There are no Major League Baseball games, the NBA and NHL playoffs have been pushed back and there are no UFC fights, no matter how hard Dana White tries.

It seems logical to assume the draft could shatter any ratings mark it has set in the past.

LA VISTA, Neb. (WOWT) -- Elkhorn's Trey Frahm didn't get a senior season, so he's had to resort to technology to get his name out there ahead of next week's MLB Draft.
He and his personal coach Brian Southworth have been putting videos and statistics out on his pitching.

“We’ve been forced to just make a lot of video and kind of share our data with our Rapsodo of what he’s been doing,” Southworth said. "Technology in baseball, it’s completely changed the way we train guys. We can see that with the optical radar, the camera and then very quickly you can add 5 MPH on a kids’ fastball by changing their grip or changing the way they pattern their arm.”
Frahm has taken advantage of said technology. He hopes he's gotten the attention of enough scouts that it'll result in him being selected by a major league squad.
“[I] Hope so. I mean, there’s definitely a couple teams that are showing interest and may be gaining momentum with, but we’ll find out,” Frahm said.
Whether or not he's drafted will determine his next move.
